Grades 6-8 Wednesday nights 7pm during the school year
Students are confirmed Fall of 9th grade on Reformation Sunday
Young people ask good questions. Our role at First Lutheran is to walk beside these young people and to encourage them to ask these faith questions and learn to journey in the walk of faith and to be community for one another. Together, we will use the Bible, small groups, and each other to find answers to what God has to do with our lives.
Religious Release Time
This meets during the Fall of the school year through December on Wednesday afternoons for grades 2nd through 5th. Students walk to First Lutheran from School.

Kids are welcome to participate in the Lord’s Supper at any age – whether at church or at home. It’s helpful to have instructions, though, so we invite first-grade students and their parents to come and learn about communion together. Watch for an opportunity each year, or do some at-home training, if you’d like. If your child is older and hasn’t yet received communion or participated in training, no worries. It’s never too late to be welcomed to the feast!
On the day of baptism, promises are made. Parents and sponsors promise to pray for their child and nurture them in faith, teach them the prayer, creed and commandments, bring them to communion and place in their hands the Bible, and live with them among God’s faithful people, so the child will learn to trust God and care for others and the world God made. The congregation, in turn, promise to help the child grow in faith.
Baptism is a communal ritual that welcomes believers to the Christian faith. As Lutherans, we welcome people of all ages, including infants. Prior to a child’s baptism, families attend a baptism class to explore the meaning of baptism and to become familiar with the service.
